Salon 253 = Spirals and Circles

Salon 253 - Spirals and Circles

This should get your creative juices flowing.

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

Closing date Midnight, Sunday 25th on November.

Here are a few examples:
If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much room.

That's a good theme for the Salon Pat. I will look forward to seeing what our members come up with.

Re: Salon 253 = Spirals and Circles

This one was spinning in my head as soon as I saw the subject for this salon

Another smartphone shot, this time taken with my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 almost two years ago.
